    Location: Arch Visitor Center Special Exhibit Gallery Time: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM Fee Information: Free

Through a collaborative partnership with Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, 426 second through sixth grade students from Maplewood Richmond Heights Elementary recently had a unique opportunity to learn about the roles and functions of National Park Service museum personnel and how they collect, preserve, document, exhibit and interpret museum artifacts. The students' experiences were documented through a multi-faceted exhibit they created, called "School as Museum," and starting Dec. 20, the public will have the chance to get a first-hand look at their work when it goes on display in the Museum of Westward Expansion, located below the Gateway Arch. The exhibit will remain on display through Jan. 13.
